We had the good fortune of connecting with Quentan McGuire and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Quentan, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
The thought process behind MGTV Network is to empower , inspire , and foster growth. Creating a space for millennials that not only value their life’s, but makes room for them to be their unique self. Partnering with storytellers to bring compelling immersive interactive stories to the screen is our mission.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Currently producing an interactive tv show with the great Novi Brown who stars in hit show Sistas on BET. What sets MGTV Network apart is our innovativeness , ingenuity , and ability to illuminate stories through film and tv. We are most excited about the space that we’re creating for millennials to not only be entertained but to be informed and inspired. MGTV has gotten where it is today through consistency, hard work, and taking a chance! This journey has not been easy. However we’ve taken every lesson along the way to help us improve the way we sharpen our craft and serve our audience. We’ve learned many lessons along the journey, but the lesson of not giving up has been our guiding light. We would like the world to know that MGTV Network is here to remind you that you are never alone and you are enough for any dream or idea!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If your friend wants to come visit me for a week in LA. Perhaps we may start the morning off at Griffith Park with a nice jog or run. Then make our way to Stout Burger, for they are delicious gourmet burgers and draft beers. Definitely check out the farmers market on Sundays . Taking a drive down PCH landing at Malibu Beach enjoying the crystal blue water clear skies 70 degree weather in sunny California.
